We Can Take Back the USA by Modeling the Hero Southwest Airline Pilots!

From the Right / Wayne Allyn Root /

A month ago, my brand-new bestseller, "The Great Patriot Protest & Boycott Book," came out. A month seems like a lifetime ago. What happened over this past month validates the strategy I laid out. It changes everything.

My book lays out the case that America and American exceptionalism are under vicious attack. We are facing a radical communist...Read more

Steele Dossier: The Lie Told Around the World, Again

From the Right / Debra Saunders /

When you think about it, the phony claim that, in 2013, former President Donald Trump cavorted with prostitutes in the Moscow Ritz-Carlton who urinated in front of him on a bed once used by former President Barack Obama and his wife was genius.

After all, who could make this stuff up? The "dossier" in which it first appeared, written by former ...Read more

Congress Needs To Provide Guardrails for the Cryptocurrency Revolution

From the Right / Josh Hammer /

The Chinese Communist Party poses the most comprehensive 21st-century threat to the American nation, the American people and the American way of life. The first half of this century will be defined by how the U.S. meets the Chinese challenge across the full spectrum of economic, national security, geopolitical and cultural issues. And an ...Read more

Don't Let Democrats Turn the US Into Europe

From the Right / David Harsanyi /

More destructive than any specific policy item modern Democrats are pushing this year are the ideas they use to justify their agenda.

The $3.5 trillion bill that President Joe Biden and Democrats are now attempting to cram through Congress via reconciliation is meant to create a European-style cradle-to-grave welfare state here in the United ...Read more

The Stories We Tell Ourselves

From the Right / Erick Erickson /

Narcissus was a beautiful hunter in ancient Greece. He shunned all romantic advances. None were as beautiful as he knew himself to be, so there was no reason for a relationship with anyone. Eventually, Narcissus fell in love with his own reflection in a pool of water by a stream. He stared so lovingly and longingly at himself, unmoved and ...Read more

Understanding the Danger America Faces From the Radical Spending Bill Democrats Want to Jam Through

From the Right / Neil Patel /

It's hard to overstate how bonkers the American left has gone. If conservatives weren't in such a state of disarray, they would be dominating American politics like never before.

President Joe Biden and leading Democrats somehow convinced themselves the 2020 election was a call to fundamentally transform America into a socialist country. They ...Read more

'Free Speech' Media Allies with 'Transgender Tyranny'!

From the Right / Tim Graham /

The left claims that their most urgent battle is to save democracy, but when it comes to any questioning of the LGBT lobby, they are the ones who sound like authoritarians. The overtones are unmistakable in the "news" coverage promoting "dozens" of employees walking out of Netflix in Los Angeles on Oct. 20 in protest. The target? A popular Dave ...Read more

Warnings and Threats -- or Bluster and Bluff

From the Right / Patrick Buchanan /

Before the NATO ministerial meeting in Brussels this week, Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin took a side trip to Georgia and Ukraine.

Purpose: Assure these nations that America has their back and encourage their hopes of future admission to NATO. Austin, said the Pentagon, would tell both nations there is an "open door to NATO."

"Ukraine ... ...Read more

Republicans Gain Big in Blue-Collar Elections But Narrowly in Affluent State Legislative Elections

From the Right / Michael Barone /

State legislative special elections provide an interesting index of partisan sentiment these days. That wasn't so in the late 20th century, when clever local candidates and notables often got voters to cross party lines. But in this century of increasing partisan polarization and straight-ticket voting, local special elections are a proxy for ...Read more

Robert E. Lee Doesn't Deserve a Statue, But Thomas Jefferson Does

From the Right / Mona Charen /

In New York City, a statue of Thomas Jefferson has graced the City Council chamber for 100 years. This week, the Public Design Commission voted unanimously to remove it. "Jefferson embodies some of the most shameful parts of our country's history," explained Adrienne Adams, a councilwoman from Queens. Assemblyman Charles Barron went even further...Read more

Who Writes the Laws?

It is distressing for those of us who believe that the Constitution means what it says to observe the destruction of liberty caused by vaccine mandates.

On one side of this destruction are those whose opposition to vaccines finds comfort in the executive orders of Texas Gov. Greg Abbott, who purported to prohibit private businesses in Texas, ...Read more

Mass Killings Avoided, US Government Silent

We have all watched as the seemingly never-ending debacle of America's 20-year failed experiment in Afghanistan comes to a new chapter of policy failure and stupidity with no accountability from the United States government.

The core lesson? Competence and integrity in government matters; we have neither.

Recently, it was discovered that as ...Read more

Fighting Illiberalism in Higher Education

I consider my children to be extraordinarily lucky to be born and live in the United States. When I moved here from France in 1999, I believed that, while far from perfect, America still very much embraced the values held by its founders, especially a respect for pluralism and viewpoint diversity.

In fact, I've long believed that the First ...Read more

Don't Let Idiots Ru(i)n the Economy, Part 2

From the Right / Laura Hollis /

Politicians have no business trying to run the American economy.

Businesses have to persuade people to part with their hard-earned money. When private companies make poor decisions, they suffer the consequences. If they charge too much or the quality of their goods is poor, customers go elsewhere. If they spend more than they bring in, they go ...Read more

Back to the Basics

Last week, the National Assessment of Education Progress issued its latest long-term trend assessment report. The results are clear: We are failing to teach our children the basics of math and reading. These results are based on tests taken before the pandemic. Just imagine how much worse the next round of tests will be due to all the ...Read more

Newt's Prophecy

Washington -- In September, former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich sat down with the Washington Times -- known amongst the cognoscenti as the "Good Times" --and made me wish he had never left the House of Representatives. Everything he said made perfect sense, including, I presume, an "Excuse me" or two when he sneezed. It is hay ...Read more

Harris and the Hatch Act

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

Vice President Kamala Harris, who appears to be in the witness protection program when it comes to her assigned role of restoring our southern border, has re-surfaced in a video she sent to 300 Black churches in Virginia. In it, she calls on congregants to vote for Democratic candidate ...Read more

Progressives Versus Independent Contractors

From the Right / Star Parker /

Despite being a politician all his life, and never having worked in a blue-collar job, President Joe Biden declared, "I'm a union man," when he announced his presidential campaign at a Teamsters union hall in Pittsburgh in April 2019.

What our president really loves is big government and political power, and there is no more reliable money ...Read more

Biden Caves to Unions Again, Sabotaging Consumers

From the Right / Betsy McCaughey /

From Christmas toys to clothing and auto parts, shortages of imported products are forcing factories to idle, store shelves to sit empty and consumers to panic.

What else is in short supply? The truth about what's causing this economic crisis.

President Joe Biden, who brags about running "the most pro-union administration in history," won't ...Read more

Even During COVID Our Quality of Life is Better Than It Was!

From the Right / John Stossel /

There's so much negative news these days. I was glad to see that a new podcast, "American Optimist," features good things that are coming.

It's hosted by Palantir founder and venture capitalist Joe Lonsdale. He interviews entrepreneurs like Sal Churi, who funds companies like Icon, which found a way to 3D print homes in just one day.
